Hamburg is Germany’s second largest city and it contains the country’s largest port.
Hamburg is known as the gateway to the world, and although it may not technically be true, it may as well be – it truly is a spectacular place to visit, and all the world would probably want to arrive there if it could.
The buildings are a wonderful combination of ancient and modern, with the oldest dating back to the Middle Ages. Hamburg was a centre for trade in the 19th (and into the 20th) century, and is now one of Germany’s richest cities.
Hamburg’s maritime history is an impressive one, and it is from this mastery of the waters that much of its trading ability – and money – comes from.
Miniatur Wunderland is a train lover’s dream. This is the largest model railway found anywhere in the world, and is a permanent exhibition found in Hamburg. Once inside you will be able to find like-minded people to enjoy the exhibition with, and you could even make friends for life.
Hamburg Zoo is another excellent day out and includes everyone’s favourite elements of interesting and exotic animals, relaxing picnic areas, children’s play areas, and cafés.
On top of this, why not visit the International Maritime Museum? With as much maritime history as Hamburg has, this will be a fascinating day out.
